a little house of your own

when my sister & i were young we went to a lot of library book sales with our mom. we loved them! we loaded up on all kinds of books & they were always really cheap. one year my sister bought a book called a little house of your own (1954) by beatrice schenk de regniers. it says that every boy & girl should have a little place that they can call their own where they can do things they like to do. i remembered how much i loved that book & decided to try to buy it online. i searched for it & found out that it is out of print. i found a copy on ebay though & it came about a month ago. i just love the illustrations in it done by irene haas.

jesska: thank you again!
